Static deployement, unknown module

  • Hi
    I'm french sorry for my english, i have issue with my static Qt application. my application is using widget and multimedia modules.
    when i try to compile, Qt says to me that: "Project ERROR: unknown module(s) in QT: multimedia"
    I don't know how i can do to import or include this module in my application?? As i said i'm using statics links and not dynamics.
    My application is running only when i don't use multimedia module. How can i fix please?

    Are you sure you built and installed the Qt Multimedia module statically ?

  • Hi,
    thanks to help me. am I sure... of course not :-/
    I just built Qt statically, but i don't know which modules have been statically built. for sure widget module is ok but not multimedia. I don't understand very good how i can do to verify which modules are statically building.

    How did you build Qt statically ?

  • I use the Qt console and write something like this:
    /path/to/qt/src/configure -static -release

    Then a process began and then when finished, i configured Qt creator to use this static version of Qt.

    Then check the content of your static installation.

    By the way, when building Qt, especially statically, you should disable examples and tests build.
